    Did the Europe-spec Hyundai i10 N Line, revealed at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show, strike a chord with you? If so, then there’s some good news coming your way. Hyundai will introduce a more powerful version of the Grand i10 Nios in India, in early 2020. The sportier version will be powered by the Venue’s 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol unit, albeit in a lower 100hp state of tune. The power figure marks a significant jump over the Nios’ existing 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine’s 83hp. To keep pricing in check, Hyundai will not offer the Venue’s 7-speed dual-clutch auto transmission on this version of the Nios. A 5-speed manual gearbox will be the sole gearbox on offer.

    The more powerful Nios will likely sport an all-black interior theme with contrast stitching and could get bespoke alloy wheels too, but the car is unlikely to get the full N Line treatment. ‘N’ is Hyundai’s performance arm and the carmaker has been studying the possibility of bringing its N cars to India as well. However, this more powerful Nios will not be badged as an N car in our market.

    The sportier Nios will go one-up on like-sized petrol rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Swift (83hp) and Ford Figo (96hp), in terms of power. However, Tata’s souped-up Tiago JTP will still have the edge, with 114hp on call.

    Expect the sportier Hyundai Grand i10 Nios to be priced at about Rs 8 lakh (estimated, ex-showroom).

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
